When Taylor Swift surprises a fan, she surprises a fan.

The chart-topping singer headed up to Connecticut on Friday (Nov. 14) to gift one of her biggest fans an early holiday present. Stephanie Barnett and her family got a visit from the "Blank Space" singer, who made sure she didn't come empty handed. She brought Barnett's son, 2-year-old Leyton, a kid-sized Mercedes to drive around in.

"She went to FAO Schwartz and got a bunch of stuff for Leyton," the North Haven mom told NBC Connecticut. "The car was so big, she's like, 'I don't know how to ship it, so I thought I'd bring it over.' And I was like, who does that? It's incredible."

Barnett and Swift met on social media several years prior to the surprise visit. Swift reportedly spent two hours with the family on Friday. "She's unbelievable," Barnett said. "The things she does for her fans, and she's a really amazing person. She's gotten a lot of people through so much more than anyone can imagine," Barnett said. "I was literally bawling on my couch, like, inconsolably, that she would do this for me and my son."

They weren't the only Swifties who got in some face time with her. Swift later headed to a local Starbucks, where she was greeted and posed with by local Quinnipiac University students.
